According to some it's not all bad news..................... and he definitely won't be fit for the Stoke match - no more news other than that so far
1. Angel Di Maria’s injury may well have saved Ander Herrera’s Manchester United career
There seems to be somewhat of a curse surrounding Manchester United. Louis van Gaal’s men have had a terrible time of late – particularly regarding injuries. And their match against Hull was no different. Like Arsenal, it appears that United can’t catch a break at present, and will do well to finish a game without one of their stars prematurely trudging down the tunnel with an injury.
Angel Di Maria is the latest United player to require a visit to the physio room, and while the Red Devils will miss the Argentine, his injury may have saved Ander Herrera’s Old Trafford career. After largely failing to impress, speculation suggested that Herrera would depart Manchester in January, but the Spaniard was outstanding in United’s 3-0 win over Hull. With a long list of injuries and having witnessed Herrera’s Man of the Match performance, Van Gaal may be slightly more inclined to keep the Spaniard in his side.
How exactly has Herrera failed to impress? He had one bad performance early in the season... but that's all I remember.
I don't get it either ......... before his rib injury I thought he was settling in really well
He was certainly impressive yesterday and seized his chance to shine when Di Maria had to come off - like Dave I also think we play better when he's on the pitch
Lots of rumours going around on Herrera right now - match fixing court summons, an eventual swap with Shaqiri - who currently can't get a game with Bayern and always looks about at least half a stone overweight ......... I really would like to know what LVG thinks of Herrera.

Honestly... why on earth was he played up front against QPR? He didn't look very effective then. Apparently it was a deliberate move to accomodate Rooney's move into midfield, but why would Van Gaal do that when he could simply place Di Maria in midfield and Rooney up top to partner Falcao? I'm no genius, but I feel it would have worked better.
Di Maria fears for his family's safety says the manager. I know this sort of thing (someone trying to break into your home) can happen anywhere in the world but I get the feeling this could be used as an excuse for Di Maria to get out of England early. Kinda think he'll be gone within the next 2 years, had these thoughts before any of this happened to be honest.
Cue stories of his wife being unhappy in the Manchester weather and wanting to move to Paris (despite it being almost as dreary as Manchester weather wise).
